Sean Walkinshaw embarks on, by far, the biggest challenge of his motor racing career at Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.

The Chipping Norton driver makes his first appearance in the annual Total 24 Hours of Spa, the biggest and most glamorous race in global GT racing.

Round four of the Blancpain Endurance Series, which is set to feature a grid of almost 60 cars from a wide variety of manufacturers, is always one of the most prestigious races on the calendar and the 21-year-old said: “I’m obviously really excited for my first 24 hour race, it’s definitely going to be the biggest race I’ve ever taken part in.

“This is the one you pretty much look forward to all season, it’s going to be a massive challenge especially as I’ve never raced at night before and then there is the physical and mental strain of competing over a 24 hour period.”
